[image]Pothole Lakes in Siberia: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained courtesy of the University of Maryland's glcf.umiacs.umd.edu/index.shtml Global Land Cover Facility .
When the Pleistocene Ice Age reached its peak around 22,000 years ago, continent-spanning glaciers covered large sections of North America and Eurasia like a sheet. As the Ice Age waned, the glaciers retreated. Occasionally large chunks of ice broke off from the glacier and became surrounded or even buried by soil and rock debris deposited by the melting ice sheet. Eventually, the blocks of ice also melted, leaving behind a depression in the ground...

The Russian city of Noril'sk lies in Siberia at the western edge of the Putorana Plateau roughly 300 kilometers (180 miles) north of the Artic Circle. This city of 230,000 people has only one reason for existence in this isolated location: mining. Today, most ore comes from deep underground mines.

[movies]Updated History of Jakobshavn Glacier Recession (1850-2004) - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center - Scientific Visualization Studio, and Goddard TV
Since measurements of Jakobshavn Isbrae were first taken in 1850, the glacier has gradually receded, finally coming to rest at a certain point for the past 5 decades. However, from 1997 to 2003, the glacier has begun to recede again, this time almost doubling in speed. The finding is important for many reasons. For starters, as more ice moves from glaciers on land into the ocean, it raises sea levels...
